Sovereignty — Territory, title — Demarcation — State succession

This chapter begins with a brief discussion of the concept of territory. It then explains key terms and distinctions, including sovereignty and jurisdiction, sovereignty and ownership, sovereignty and administration, and ‘sovereign rights’ beyond state territory. This is followed by discussions of territorial administration separated from state sovereignty and restrictions on disposition of territory.
